Signs and Marquees

Gold paint transforms old sign

This gold-leaf liquid paint sign was the work of 12 hours of labor by a senior citizen in South Carolina. He repaired two areas of wood rot, then hand sanded the dark green background and painted the green with One-Shot sign painters’ enamel. Then he sanded the white edge and back of the sign. He painted that area with One-shot white paint.

Note the detail in the lettering that he accomplished with his two different size brushes. After the gold-leaf paint cured, he protected the bronze-alloy coating with a clearcoat to block the aging process.

Note: Sign done by an artist celebrating his 57th wedding anniversary in 2017.

Sign headlines the Maudlin, SC, Facebook page.

For river travelers in Bridgewaters, NY, the Lauren Kristey boasts the use of gold-leaf liquid paint. The coating accents the design of the paddle wheeler. For information about this paddle wheeler check their website.

See a gold-leaf liquid paint and sewer pipes combo on this blog entry. Looks good.
